who we are

We are a friendly community of people who enjoy exploring the outdoors. Our 1,100+ members are drawn from northwestern Westchester County, New York and beyond. All share a common desire to learn more about birds and other wildlife, and a common belief in the importance of preserving and protecting wildlife habitats. We hope you’ll browse through our upcoming events and join us for a field trip, workshop or community program.

In Spring 2022, we are offering a monthly schedule of Zoom events and our twice monthly Bird Chats.

We are also offering over 40 small group field trips. Most are only available by registration but we are also offering “open walks” for which no registration is required. We do require all participants to have a completed COVID vaccination.
